Tom Jones Tikolo (born 24 October 1961) is a former Kenyan cricketer. He captained Kenya in 22 ICC Trophy games, more than anyone else. Despite that, he only played in one first class match, although he did well, scoring 79 in one innings. After ending his playing career, Tikolo became the development officer for East Africa. In 2005, he was named as the new CEO of Cricket Kenya and also as a national selector. Tikolo is the brother of cricketers David and Steve Tikolo.

On 22 December 2009, Tikolo quit as Chief Executive of Cricket Kenya after US$10,000 he claimed while in the West Indies for an Under-15 tournament in May 2008 was unaccounted for, following an investigation by Cricket Kenya. The money had been given to Tikolo directly by a team sponsor, for what Tikolo claimed was needed to fund matches for the team in Dubai, on their way back to Kenya. In reality, there were no matches being held for the team in Dubai. Normally such money would enter the respective board's central bank account. Tikolo had then claimed a bag containing the money was stolen a few days later, which he reported to the sponsors but not to the local police. [1]
